Discovery Academy students placed higher than their peers nationwide on the national ACT test. Many colleges and universities use the test as part of their admissions criteria to measure whether or not high school students are academically prepared for college classes. In the 2009-2010 test Discovery students’ composite score was 2.4 percent higher than the national average.
Academy students outscored their peers nationally in virtually every category: English – DA 73, National 66; Math – DA 45, National 43; Social Science – DA 82, National 52; Biology – DA 36, National 29.
In addition, the number of students meeting all four ACT benchmark scores was three percent higher than the national average, 27% compared to 24%.
Discovery Academy students use the one-on-one learning to boost their grades across the board, as well as build study skills and improve academic confidence. Many choose to complete their high school education at the Academy. After high school graduation, Academy students have been accepted to prestigious universities such as Princeton, Rutgers, College of William and Mary, Florida State, Brigham Young, Texas A&M, and the United States Military Academy.
Congratulations to our students and their dedicated teachers for achieving academic excellence!
